Contents overview

Changing customer needs, shortened product lifecycles and the emergence of boundary-spanning innovation efforts challenge the linear approach to product development. As a result, firms are experimenting with a broad range of alternative development approaches, featuring more iterative and customer-centric methodologies (e.g., agile development, design thinking). In this seminar, students will assume the perspective of a product development team, developing and designing a product prototype. Developed prototypes will 3D-printed, tested and refined in several iterations, giving students a real-life development experience with all elements of high dynamic market environments.
